Leading bed manufacturer Simmons is developing a new bed with Panasonic Electric Works, to be available in February 2010. The bed uses Panasonic’s cutting edge technology to offer a comfortable sleep environment through automatic adjustment of lighting and sound.
In addition to lighting and audio equipment and controllers, the new Simmons Restino is installed with sensors that detect body movement and room temperature. At bedtime the unit plays relaxing music as the lighting turns down gradually, and shuts off automatically when the bed detects no body movement. The light turns on and music plays to induce the user to wake up for the day. The price hasn’t been announced yet.
